How energy reforms will make it easier to slow global warming
December 10 at 8:00 AM
This month marks the opening of a year-long marathon of meetings focused on slowing global warming. The starting gun sounded with the summit that just began in Lima; late next year, the finish line appears when governments are expected to adopt new climate accords in Paris.
The hard truth in all this is that governments have been doing a terrible job with global warming. The last successful climate marathon was run in 1997 when governments adopted the Kyoto Protocol; since then, emissions of the gases that cause warming have risen by one-third.
There has been no warming since Kyoto in 1997. Our government and journalists are complete morons.
